What next for adult education?
Throughout this course, we have considered what it is to be a mature learner, the barriers for adults in coming back to education, and the levels of support that there is available for returner learners.Take some time to read through the linked article and as we draw the course to a close, offer your suggestions for an adult education system that lifts those barriers once and for all so that adult education does really become a lifelong learning journey for all.There will be an increasing need for lifelong learning. Continuing education contributes positively to well-being and health, which, as well as being an intrinsic good, has positive consequences for the economy through the health of the population and the workforce…This needs to be at the heart of our endeavours to improve the prosperity of our country and the well-being of our people.’
